Had to ask several times to get the various meats brought to the table; took over 40 minutes for the servers to come by the tables. Also pricey for what you get as they brag about 18 cuts of meat but you are lucky to get 5 or 6 and have to fight for even that. No side dishes of any significance

Food was pretty good, though rather slow with the rounds of meat.

Server was good when seating is, but never saw him again.

All in all, will choose another Brazilian steakhouse next time, it was not great.

Terrible service. Had to get up to find a waiter multiple times. For drinks and for side dishes. Had to go to hostess stand. Asked for side dishes multiple times and they finally brought them out as we were finishing up. Very disappointing meal

Went with a party of 10 for a birthday and was seated in the room with two other massive parties who were served more often than our party who had to ask multiple times to be served. Disappointing, we will not be back.

Was my Bday dinner with friends. Meat selection was limited and what was served wasn’t very good (over cooked or way under cooked). They keep pushing and pushing the pineapple. It was like they were out of meat. The servers were dripping meat juice all over the table. It wasn’t the great dinner I had hoped for. My friends came and spent some money, and I felt like I had to apologize for selecting the spot. Last time at this place. I’ll take my business elsewhere.

My partner had never been to a Brazilian style churrascaria, so I brought her to Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse. It was a good as I remember. The restaurant has handsome decor. The service was prompt and thorough. Our food was excellent as always. If you love Brazilian Steakhouses, Rafain is as good as any in the city.

We have been going here for years and have always loved it. The last few times though have been terrible. This last time the service was probably the worst service we have had at any restaurant in 15 years. Then to top it off our party of 5 was charged an 18% gratuity on the check. Won’t be going back.

Wonderful salad bar, wide variety of meats brought to you table and carved as you want, the hot pineapple is amazing. Atmosphere is fantastic. Waiters and servers are there to meet your every needs.

A truly unbelievable experience.

We’ve been there several times. However this visit was disappointing. We had looked forward to it as it was our 51’st wedding anniversary. The majority of the meats, other than the chicken, were “very tough” and chewy. This was the first time we had experienced the toughness/ chewiness of the meat.
The salad bar was excellent as usual.

Service is very good unfortunately atmosphere is just okay. They don’t know how to celebrate birthday after I put notation in my reservation. They just have the waited tell you happy birthday, literally.

Great place for a double date -- just make sure to bring your A-game appetite!

FOOD: As always, my absolute favorite thing is the roasted pineapple, but I also really enjoyed the beef ribs (so tender!), the picanha (to get a truly medium-rare piece, wait till someone else takes the outer crust), and the filet mignon (though they called it a "tenderloin"?). Definitely avoid the Parmesan chicken and leg of lamb (I enjoy gamey meats but I'm pretty sure the lamb was past its ideal consume-by date).

DRINK: I paired my dinner with the German Windisch Dornfelder Sweet Red Wine -- VERY smooth, lower in tannins, just the right amount of sweetness to offset the saltiness of the meats (though I generally prefer sweeter wines).

SERVICE: The service was pretty lacking for a Saturday night (it took a while to get our drink order and then another lengthy wait to get the drinks). I was also a little upset because it seemed like the selection of meats was extremely limited for a Saturday night. I'm pretty sure we only saw 1/3 of the total menu circulating around. You can ask for specific meats, but there isn't a list of the meat offerings that night readily available on the table.

AMBIANCE: Outside the door, there's a sign that states the attire is "business casual." It isn't (up to you to determine if that's a good or bad thing). There were quite a few people in t-shirts and jeans (some kids in basketball shorts), and one guy even had a baseball cap on through the entire meal at the table next to us. Most people were in dressy casual.

VALUE: Definitely check out Groupon before you visit! Our little group purchased a Groupon for Dinner for 4 (with 4 coffees), which brought the cost of dinner down from $48.49 to $37.50. You'll still owe tax on the total and a forced gratuity of 18%, but overall a very reasonable price!

Restaurant is gorgeous. Waitstaff was good. The only issue I had was when making the reservation I specified that it was my wife’s birthday and also under special request I notated the same, but no recognition was given. Even though we saw other tables being served desserts with candles in them implying it was someone’s birthday. Other than that the experience was great.

Salad bar is was not being serviced. They were out of several items and I saw no one working on it.
The meat service was okay, but they were overwhelmed and had to be asked multiple times for a particular cut or item.
The desserts were a joke. Don't even bother with them. The cheesecakes were something from a wholesaler club.
There are much better Brazilian steak houses in Dallas. The only reason why we picked this one was for the grilled pineapple. Go with the other options.

I love this place and always give it 5 stars but this time I was very dissatisfied with the service. I took my family and friends there for a birthday dinner. It took 20 mins to get our drinks after we ordered. It took over 15mins before the staff brought the meats to table. It didn’t seem that the restaurant was very busy. I don’t why the service was very slow that night.

The worst experience ever. The only good thing was the hostess. Our server was the worst! We sat there for like 10 minutes to get some meat, then my water ran out it took the waiter forever to come and refill it, my drink free m the bar took forever and it was super disgusting not good at all, when we asked the waiter to clear our plated he took out card for the meat too it was an overall horrible experience will never go back and don’t recommend this place to nobody.
